The first hotel of our chain of luxury hotels 'The Diamond' was built in 1972 in Geneva, Switzerland. Since its creation, 'The Diamond' is experiencing significant growth which is expressed by our strong presence at international level (400 hotels in 32 countries mainly in Europe and also in the USA).
Our hotels attract mainly tourist and professionals who require spacious arrangement suitable for organizing conferences, business dinners so on. Other hotel chains also benefit from this type of customer and offer the same standard as that we offer, such as Hilton Marriott or Hyatt group. Our tourists come from a rather affluent class and will therefore wait for a premium service.
They want a recreation program rich with varied impacts on the animation of the hotel (evening lively gym, sauna, pool, massages, shopping and partners) as for the cultural offer; this implies that the Hotel is located in a city of museums, theaters. The businessmen organizing conferences in our branches do not usually provide just a standard conference.
Even if they are visiting for professional reasons, they also want to make the most of the hotel offer. Whether in hotels or in the city, we offer a wide range of entertainment in the evening to relax, therefore it seems crucial to develop a uniform global image, to retain customers and they find the same quality of service in each of our hotels around the world.
For twenty years, the direction of "The Diamond" has decided to follow an international strategy. In their debut, "The Diamond" focused mainly on Switzerland. In 1982, and after acquiring sufficient knowledge of the Swiss market, "The Diamond" has begun to expand its network to other markets in Europe and the United States.
Today, the goal is to locate in countries where tourism tends to grow and where the market is not saturated by many competitors. The company has its loyal customers in the developed Western world and they now want to "attack" the emerging countries. Even if these countries do not have a standard of living so high, otherwise loyal customers will be attracted by the brand that is already well known. The target group is an increase in turnover and profit. We also want to tackle the competition to become number 1 in the world.
Selection criteria for selecting countries that are most appropriate for the profile of our business and our strategic objectives. According to our strategy and our goals, it should first determine the criteria that seem to dominate the future then select target countries.
The cultural criterion: customs and habits that mark life in the country; providing entertainment: theaters, museums, cinemas, casinos near the hotel.
The economic criterion: country economically stable; economically developed or developing; country open to foreign capital?
The geographical criterion (necessary in the case of a hotel complex): infrastructure (airports, highways and railways) to the hotel should be easily accessible to facilitate travel of the guests during their stay; landscapes and other natural attractions (sea, mountains, wildlife).
